When Mr Taft expressed gratitude for the stolen nomination
given him, many persons no doubt were shocked. It seemed pain
ful that he should give thanks for a victory tainted by fraud and
approve a betrayal of his party. Yet he was really gratified and
probably sincere. Mr. Taft held that to prevent the nomination
of Theodore Roosevelt was a patriotic duty. The cost, whether
in reputation or party honor, weighed nothing against the su
preme desire. He gloried in the task. From a Taft organ we
take this illuminating and convincing picture:
The true temper of Mr. Taft's spirit in the fight was never
more clearly described than by himself. Bpeaking to one of his
friends while the republican convention was in session, and ai
the moment when the news came by wire that tbe danger of Mr.
Roosevelt's nomination had passed, he exclaimed:
"It Hoes not matter much what may become of me and my
political fortunes. If I shall succeed in doing nothing more than
to defeat Mr. Roosevelt in this convention, I shall think that 1
have done the people of this country a great service."
Who was. the man upon whom Mr. Taft thus passed sentence
or rather what was his status as a candidate for the republican
nomination? In 12 states the voters of the party had an oppor
tunity to name their preference ut the polls. The results were
us follows:
Roosevelt. Taft.
California 138,663 69,345
Illinois 2(i(i,!H7 127,4X1
Maryland «.-. . 29,124 26,009
Massachusetts 83,099 86.722
Nebraska 46,795 13,341
New Jersey 61,297 44,034
North Dakota 23,009 1,876
Ohio 165,809 118,302
Oregon 28,905 20.517
Pennsylvania 298,902 193,003
South Dakota 35,637 9,813
Totals 1,178,777 710,593
Note —In Wisconsin Roosevelt was not a candidate. The »'©•
suit was: l.aKollette, 133,354; Taft, 47,51».
Mr. Taft set himself to override the public will thus express
ed. Tie succeeded. And thereby, he says, he performed "a great
service to the people of this country." It seems llko an exhi
bition of monstrous hypocrisy, yet it is not such.
Jlere we have the most vivid picture of Mr. Tail's mind and
the most lucid synopsis of his political philosophy. In aiming to
defy and defeat the will of 1,178,000 voters out of 1,888,000 he
simply expressed the guiding principle of his administration, his
policies and It is candidacy—that this must be made, not "a gov
ernment of the people by the people," but "a government of the
people by a representative part of the people."

Judge Joiner of SkagitCounty
Passes on Primary Law-
The ruling of the attorney general
on the Whatcom county judiciary
election squabble has not yet been re
ceived, so that the tangle appears to
be as complicated as ever.
Judge Joiner, of Skagit county, in
Seattle on Saturday in the superior
court, held that a candidate for jiulg >
cannot be declared a preferential nom
inee unless be receves more votes
than were cast for all the other can
didates. This decision not only ren
ders it impossible for any of the nom
inees of September 10 to obtain prefer
ential places on the November judi
ciary ballot, but nullified the effect of
the nonpartisan judicial law passed
at the last session of the legislature,
and an appeal will be immediately car
ried to the supreme court for an in
terpretation of the phrase "majority
of all votes cast," on which the ques
tion was determined by Judge Joiner.
* * •
Attorneys claim that the Whatcom
county case in which Judges Hardin
and Kellogg and Mr. Pemberton, the
nonpartisan primary candidate!, are
interested, is not at all cleared up by
Judge Joiner's decision.
• • •
The auditor of King county brought
suit against all the candidate! for su
perior judge to show cause why he
should not be permitted to open the
boxes and count the number of bal
lots east in the nonpartisan judiciar;.
primary as, from the returns from
the precincts, he was unable to de
termine who, if any, should be plac
ed on the November ballot as ma
jority nominees.
* • *
A similar case has occurred in
Pierce county, where the auditor In
stituted similar proceedings in that
county and without opposition ob
tained an order from Superior Judge
Clifford authorizing the recount. In
King county, however, opposition to
such a procedure developed.
« • •
One of the judiciary candidates
Humphries, in King county, at the
first suggestion of a recount in thf
judicial ballots, called upon the and
itor, and with a written protest inter
posed a formal demurrer. His demur
rer along the lines that there was nr
warrant in law for opening ballot
boxes except in cases of contest and
read voluminously from a dozen 01
more authorities. With him, and wait
ing to make arguments, were three
other candidates, one of whom car
ried with him a motion to quash the
proceedings on the grounds of uncon
stitutionality of the act should Hum
phries fall In his demurrer.
* • a
Judge Joiner decided to hear the
county attorney before listening
to objectors. In the midst of argument
the court asked the prosecution what
Construction he placed on the "ma
jority of the votes" clause in the law.
• • •
The act provides that where an>
candidate for any such office shal 1
receive a majority of all votes cast al
such primary election for such office
the name or names of such candidates
receiving such majority shall be print
ed separately on the general electior
ballot, it would mean that of an>
candidate for superior judge received
:>1 per cent of all the judicial ballot
cast he would be entitled to go upon
the ticket as a majority candidate.
• • •
The court hold that in order for n
candidate to have his name printed
upon the ballot as a majority nominee
he would have to receive 61 per cent
of all votes cast. In other words
there being 28 candidates in Kirn
county for superior judge, before an>
one candidate could be preferred on
the ballot, he would have to receive
more than the total number of votes
cast for all other candidates.
"This literal construction of the act
of 1911 virtually destroys it," said
the prosecuting attorney later, "for
it is an impossibilty for any one man
to have received such a vote. Under
our constructon, all persons receiving
a majority of the ballots cast would
be entitled to preference as major
ity nominees. Under Judge Joiner*
ruling, the county auditor will count
the total of each candidate and if any
one candidate shall receive more than
the aggregate of these totals his name
will lie placed upon the ticket as a ma
jority nominee.
"The point in qUMftjon was not
raised by any of the objectors, but
was suggested by the court during the
argument in support of the petition.
We shall carry the case to the su
preme court and seek the construc
tion we believe proper."
"1 will admit that the bosses do
not like me. What'a more, 1 will
make them not like me some more
before I am through. We Progress
ives intend to see that in our own
party every promise made by a pub
lic man is kept." -Theodore Roose

Hodge, Teats, and Landon
Receive Splendid Ovations
In Whatcom County.
The Progressives opened their
campaign In Whatcom County last
Priday night, when Robert Hodge,
candidate for governor, and Govnor
i'eats, candidate for lieutenant gov
ernor; Dan Landon, candidate for
congressman of the first district,
and others, addressed a big rally at
Blame, It was the largest and most
enthusiastic political gathering that
had assembled in that town for a
long time, and it was an Intelligent
and earnest meeting of representa
tive men and women who greeted
ihe speakers. Prom the time that
.Senator Landon appeared upon the
platform until Honest Bob Hodge
hud closed his manly and convinc
ing speech, the closest attention was
accorded the speakers.
Senator Landon was enthuslastic
:illy applauded and there remained
no doubt in the minds of those pre
iieut that he was an able exponent
f the policies that stand for the
rights of the people, andthat he will
carefully guard those rights and in
terests when he goes to Washington

won the crowds who listened to

Apropos of the vicious attacks on
the Progressive party by the 1101 -

bear in mind that "there's a rea
